2 years - And the blogging journey continues!

I totally skipped right on by it, but this month two years ago, July 5th to be exact, I started blogging. Go here if you want to read my first post.

I NEVER would have guessed how much I’d come to love blogging and the friends that I would make. A lot of bloggers I’ve been able to meet in real life, and there are so many others of you I’d LOVE to meet and someday hopefully WILL meet.

There really is something truly special about the blogging community.

This has become such an outlet for me.

When I signed up for a blog I had no idea what I’d say or if I'd even stick with this, but as you can see it’s apparent after 2 years, I have no problem talking and sharing.

I often STILL sit back and scratch my head and ponder why it is that you all take interest in my little ole’ life, but I guess it’s for the same reason I take interest in the blogs that I read.

I’ve shared my highs and my lows with you.

I’ve shared my imperfections.

I’ve shared my doubts.

I’ve shared my worries.

I’ve shared my family.

I’ve shared my friends.

I’ve shared my faith.

I’ve shared my life.

And I hope that just a smidgen of what I’ve had to say has encouraged and inspired each and every one of you in some way or another.

That’s truly what this blog is all about and the rest is just the icing on the cake.

I appreciate each and every one of you that take the time to comment or to even read this blog if you do not comment. Thank you from the bottom of my heart!

And here’s to another year of "Walking This Journey Called Life" :)
